DEL MAR

Race 1

Very wide open 6 furlong race for 16k claimers, No. 1 Silvertron has the good connections of Kent D and Hess, he comes here from Churchill Downs, No. 3 Justonemorething has a nice work here on the 14th and Van Dyke gets back on and he was on this gelding when he broke his maiden. 1-3

Race 2

This race is also a mystery and has the looks of anyone can win, No. 3 Whiskey Wild comes off the layoff and was in good form before, No. 5 Venetian Mask gets off the grass and a big drop in class. 3-5

Race 3

This is scheduled to be run at 5 furlongs on the grass so let’s hope that the rains stay away, No. 3 Forest Chatter broke his maiden here last year at this five furlong distance on the grass, No. 6 Head South won going down the hill at Santa Anita in his last start and that was his first on the grass. No. 9 Heir of Storm gets his second off the layoff of Peter Miller, he will be right there. 3-6-9

No. 1 Briana Jean exits our HTW list off a solid second last out when dropped to this level, No. 3 Grape Fizz sowed good early speed in her one start.

No. 1 Sir Cal had a very tough trip in his last start as he was taken six wide on the turn after breaking dead last, look for the great rail trip today and a visit to the winners circle. 1
